DBR speakers utilise the latest technology and speaker designs to get that fantastic performance, including
Digital FIR-X tuning™
FIR-X tuning is Yamaha's proprietary linear phase digital crossover technology that delivers sound quality with superb clarity and imaging. FIR filters are usually only found in speakers in higher price brackets (over £1K). The FIR filter handles the common phasing issues which occur around the cross-over point of the speaker helping to achieve the ‘High-definition’ sound with no colouration or fuzzyness
Yamaha D-Contour offers intelligent multi-band dynamic processing which can continuously deliver sound that is natural, clear and powerful - regardless of volume. The technology constantly monitors the output of multiple frequency bands so that the system can sense a change, react accordingly and adjust the EQ and compression so that you're always getting the best performance out of your speakers.
Extensive DSP-controlled protection functions.
To ensure that the speakers have the highest possibly reliability, The DBR Series employs 3-way fail safe protection function that is controlled by DSP and ensures reliable operation of all internal components including transducers, power amplifiers, and power supplies. Yamaha are so confident in this system that they offer a 4 YEAR WARRANTY on the DBR speakers!
